I think that you will really enjoy that cab. Extra power, traction and warmth.
Now the S-16 gets to sleep all winter?

The heated cab is soooo nice!!! This is actually my father's rig. I still use the S-16 all winter on plow duty over at my house!

That's what I thought Jim. Isn't it hard to go back though?

I always enjoy running new equipment, but there is something about the old iron that always pulls me back.

I have to agree with you! Love the old stuff! I just received a binder from my grand father with all the adds from the different makes and models of his time of purchasing the S-16 in 77, so cool!! Even had the bill of sale for the old girl.

Came out really nice :thumbs:       Does this angle hydraulics have any way to relive if you catch the edge into something ?   My PK w/fel  has a snowplow that goes on instead of the bucket and bucket tilt cylinder becomes the angle cylinder . One year I got into the stone wall and broke the piston . :(   I guess that's not too bad for all the years I used it

Al, that is a good thought. Place my dad works has a similar setup using the tractor hydraulics. Gets to fix a cylinder almost every year. They really should have a crossover relief. But it still takes aggressive plowing to break it.

No it does not. My welds would probably break before the cylinder though lol! Or the blade would probably bend ;)

The cylinder is good for 9420lbs of force so I think it would take quite a bit to break it.
